Myrtle Cottage Garden Studio by Stonewood Design

  • Comment

Stephen Lawrence Prize 2015 shortlist: A small and discrete studio in the garden of a cottage in a woodland hamlet

This small, discreet building serves as a space to work, sew, play guitar and sleep. It is built into the side of a steep hill below an accessible flat sedum roof. Impeccably detailed and crafted inside and out, it is clad entirely in patinated copper sheet externally, and lined in oak boarding internally, with limited areas of polished copper. To the rear, a top-lit seating area provides an atmospheric place in which to pause from the daily grind.
